Sunny Day on the Farm

Phoebe looking for Shep and Chelsea

It was a beautiful day today except for a bit of a breeze. It felt SO GOOD to be outside enjoying the sunshine finally..seems like it's been weeks since we've had a good sunny day! I took my camera out and got a few pictures of the animals. Shep our Akbash pup who will soon be 8 months old, Chelsea our raggedy looking farm dog Shih Tzu and our little Dinky Donkey Phoebe were all enjoying spending a little time together along the fence. Phoebe has an 'attitude' that matches Chelsea's but somehow they get along really well...most of the time anyway. Shep is just a big easy going mush who loves everyone and nearly everything. Bubba he wasn't having any part of the 'party' so spent most of his time on the porch. The chickens were having fun hunting and pecking in the pasture and the cats were enjoying the sunshine. Unfortunately the cats went in for a siesta so missed the photo session. It was a wonderful day.  I hope your day will be a good one too. Take care.     Maura

I am so DELIGHTED that you stopped by and brought attention to this delightful blog! You cannot imagine how I love such an environment as yours. I was raised in one like it and miss it terribly sometimes. All the time to be truthful! I miss the smells, the animals, the ...just everything!

That is what is so great about blogging...every now and then someone comes along that shares their life and times and it is exactly what you need to see...and sometimes hear! :)

Do come see me again. My blog is not the greatest...but I am not trying for that. I am just enjoying getting to know how many fantastic folks there are out there, loving, sharing and going through life the same as I am.
:) It will be fun getting to know you!

Sometimes when I get up early in the morning, I think of you feeding all those animals and taking care of them..Lots of work I bet, but I hope you are enjoying it.
